Study at KIU

Why Study at Kampala International University

KIU is Chartered by the Government of Uganda.

The Charter legalizes the University, and as a result, academic papers from KIU are recognized worldwide as valid. In addition, once you enroll from KIU, you can thereafter upgrade from any higher institution of learning across the world.

KIU has a fully equipped ultra-modern library.

Our ultramodern library provides 5000+ sitting capacity, wireless internet, a wide selection of books, and online journals.

KIU graduates are employable.

Our graduates are fully backed and employable across the globe. We have traced our alumni and found out that many of them have been employed in the different countries of the world including but not limited to Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Somalia, Sudan (North and South), Nigeria, South Africa, Pakistan, Ghana, and the US. One of the core reasons for our high rate of employability is that KIU emphasizes practical hands-on experience. For instance, our computer labs are fully stocked with computers for practical classes and research purposes. Our Mass Communication students cover news within the University on a daily basis. Our medical students have the opportunity to practice at our Teaching Hospital in Ishaka Campus.

KIU gives Bursary Scholarships.

We give half tuition fees bursary to any Ugandan student who qualifies for admission and has been recommended by his or her home District LC 5 Chairperson. Essentially under this program, the University pays half of your tuition throughout your course of study.

We are a Multi-Campus University.

KIU has campuses in Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania. In addition, we have study centres in several parts of Uganda. Accordingly, you have the opportunity to choose and enroll from your favorite or most convenient campus/Study centre.

We are International.

KIU gives you the opportunity to connect and network with students from all over the world. As a result, this could open up for your opportunities to work or get scholarship in other Countries. In addition, it could open up business opportunities in other countries. This is possible because some of the students we have are Ministers, Business persons, and Employers in their home countries.
